4 thrusts for recommendations by Animal Welfare Legislation Review Committee
Recommendations to strengthen the current laws on animal welfare will be finalised soon.
Acting Manpower Minister and Senior Minister of State for National Development Tan Chuan-Jin said the review committee, set up in April this year, will be submitting its recommendations to the National Development Ministry (MND) in the coming months.
There will be four key aspects.
These are ensuring reasonable care and welfare of animals; stepping up action against wrong-doers; fostering greater responsibility in the industry to ensure animal welfare; and fostering greater responsibility amongst pet owners and greater community awareness of animal welfare.
Mr Tan was speaking at the Responsible Pet Ownership Roadshow 2012.
